Consolevania produced this documentary/interview piece to highlight the good points and the problems with the gaming industry in Scotland. It was funded by Scottish Enterprise, and while there is no logo on this version a shorter version likely will be endorsed by them. This was released online after a premier at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival 2007, on the 23rd of August 2007.
Produced in 3 days with the help of Brian Baglow, the main part is "a whistlestop tour of the Scottish games industry", meeting all of the vast amount of studio's interviewed. This includes one of Consolevania's favourite shows , Crystal Maze, Rab getting an sacrifice for the Scottish games industry, and a long wait to see Realtime Worlds.
The last part (at 40:22), is discussing the state of the Scottish industry, taking opinions from most of the previous interviewees.
